Seagate GoFlex Satellite 500GB Mobile Wireless Storage (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Looking forward for a better firmware 09/30/2013

This review is from: Seagate GoFlex Satellite 500GB Mobile Wireless Storage (Black)

Pros: An easy way to extend your device's media storage.

I like the product.

Cons: Some issues with the software (see below). Let's hope the next firmware will fix those.

Other Thoughts: Hardware:
Wireless range - less than 30 feet. But that's enough if used on a car trip.
Battery life - about 2 hours if listening to music. But the device could charge and stream in the same time.

Software:
The Seagate iOS app fails to browse into folders named with non-latin letters.
The DLNA server starts re-indexing every time the device is turned on - a long-lasting operation with constant disk spin. That drains the battery. And the long wait is inconvenient if you use a DLNA client instead of the Seagate app.

Corsair P128 CMFSSD-128GBG2D 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked for about 3 hours (HP laptop, Vista 64).

Cons: Suddenly disappeared as a device, even the BIOS could not see it. Put it in an external sata enclosure and connected to some other PCs without any success.
Requested an RMA, maybe it was just a defective device.

Other Thoughts: (When it worked) the benchmarks were far from good:

Tested by copying a 10GB file from one folder to another. Initially the speed was acceptable - about 80-90 MB/s. After a minute the speed started dropping (and the drive became pretty hot) and soon got stabilized at 22-23 MB/s. FYI, the replaced hard disk (5400) does the same at constant 24-25 MB/s speed.

TYAN S2866G3NR-RS ATX Server Motherboard 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Very disappointed 11/02/2007

This review is from: TYAN S2866G3NR-RS ATX Server Motherboard 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra

Pros: Nice layout. No useless components as for a server motherboard.

Cons: Hangs/reboots occasionally, which is not acceptable for a server.

Other Thoughts: Changed 2 different power supplies, 3 types of memory, even 2 different CPUs in order to isolate the problem... Must be a defective motherboard.

Nothing fancy in the PC configuration: just 1 IDE and 2 SATA disks, no add-on cards, onboard graphics card is used. No overheating detected (CPU < 40C, motherboard < 35C).

Cannot blame the OS (WHS, which is NT Server 2003) because sometimes the computer freezes at the BIOS setup screen.
